Do you have a story about an interaction or running into Kevin Durant in public?
Welcome to the home of our newly created Thunder Buddies podcast, named, in part, from Universal Studio’s highly-acclaimed comedy ‘Ted’, but inspired by our continued hope for wall-to-wall coverage of OKC’s only professional team.
Eddie Sutton is like a lot of orange-clad Oklahomans this week, torn between an Oklahoma State hoops standout and a beloved professional team.
“Oh, I’m a big Thunder fan,” Sutton says.
But he’s also a mentor and good friend to Memphis guard Tony Allen.
“It’s like, I want the Thunder to win, but I want Tony to have a good game,” Sutton explained. “Sometimes that kinda puts you in a strange position.”
The difference, though, between Sutton and some other split-allegiance Thunder fans is that the coach had a leading hand in creating the monster that’s now terrorizing the streets of downtown OKC and the nightmares of its superstar.
For the second straight day, Kevin Durant grew a tad testy while fielding questions about Grizzlies guard Tony Allen’s defense.

The Thunder general manager was part of the Spurs’ brain trust back in the day that selected a slew of international players.
For the second time in a week, Oklahoma lost a football commitment.

Oklahoma junior Shelby Pendley belted a third-inning grand slam as part of a six-run frame which sparked the Sooners to an 8-0 victory in five innings over Central Arkansas on Tuesday.
